Incoming exchange students

Nottingham is a vibrant city in the heart of England and a great place to study. Nottingham Law School is situated on the edge of the city centre with student accommodation located close to our outstanding teaching facilities.

Exchange programme

Taking part in a study exchange scheme is a great way to experience a new culture and to meet new friends. Studying law in England will give you an opportunity to reflect on the difference in how the law is made here compared to your own country, and an appreciation of other legal systems.

We welcome exchange applications from students of our partner universities under the Erasmus + or Study Abroad schemes. Your home university must have a student exchange agreement with Nottingham Law School, Nottingham Trent University, before we can accept an application.
